    Do you recommend getting a battery powered one? Or a pneumatic?

    If pneumatic, it may just need some oil.

    I will get that action if a nail has come lose, and is now stuck in the ejection port. Make sure you don't have a "hanger", that is causing the following nails to stop from advancing.

    I have all three. Pneumatic requires a compressor, hoses and power. The gas require a battery and fuel cells. The impulse, which you have, only require a battery.

    The convenience is the mobility.

    By the way, Ryobi is rated higher than the Milwaukee for the battery charge vs nail use.

    Battery seems like the way to go if I can get it working.
